When we encounter a difficult situation or a health crisis, or when a person makes a decision to change long-standing problematic patterns or behaviors, those times can be seen as turning points leading you to a better, healthier life. These turning points serve as opportunities for learning about yourself and making lasting changes, resulting in living a vital life. New Leaf Institute is designed to meet the needs of individuals at turning points in their lives, such as preparing for weight-loss surgery, addressing stressors in one's life or relationships, reducing symptoms of depression or anxiety, or embarking on a period of personal growth to reach one's full potential.
As a solution-focused cognitive behavioral therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying evidence-based approaches individually tailored to address your concerns, psychotherapy can provide insight and tools which you can use to make positive changes in your life and maintain those changes in your future.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, preparing for surgery, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Please call or email me for a pre-surgical psychological evaluation or an individual therapy appointment today in Owasso.
